LOAN WATCH: Chelsea starlet Palmer helps Huddersfield return to winning ways

Kasey Palmer inspired Huddersfield Town to a 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The Chelsea youngster opened the scoring for the Terriers as they returned to winning ways to retain their spot on top of the Championship table.

Palmer ghosted in at the back post to head home Rajiv van la Parra's cross from the left in the 14th minute at John Smith's Stadium.

The 19-year-old was close to adding a second when a deflected effort needed saving by QPR keeper Adam Smithies before Palmer produced a lovely chipped cross for Nahki Wells who really should have scored.

The home side's lead was doubled just after the hour-mark when Elias Kachunga, on loan from German club FC Ingolstadt, met Tommy Smith's cross with a well-directed header before Idrissa Sylla pulled one back for the R's past Liverpool keeper Danny Ward.

Manchester City's Aaron Mooy again impressed with a full 90 minutes in his key midfield role for David Wagner's Huddersfield.

After the match, Palmer told HT TV: “It was important for us to bounce back after losing against Brighton, which was a difficult game.

“We bounced back well.

“I'm buzzing to be fair. I said to my missus before the game I was going to score as well. i just had that feeling."
